Hello...Help me export group contact emails from Outlook Express 6 to .CSV file. Please! Spent 4.5 hrs trying to figure this out already...

Hello...Ready to pull my hair out at this point... This may have been answered before but I cannot find the exact steps to solve this problem, so maybe worth asking again: I have been using Microsoft Outlook Express 6 to send my emails, however I now need to move all of my contacts from that email system to the mail program installed on my Macbook.

I have been able to export to a .CSV file all of the emails that were not organized into groups, but cannot figure out how to easily export ALL of my contacts, including those separated into groups. Or even just export the contacts in the individual groups.

Please, can anybody give me simple directions to export the emails out of Outlook Express 6 Groups into .CSV files.

A quick answer would be appreciated, as the ancient pc laptop I've been using is about to die and I need to rescue this information ASAP.

Thanks!

Kat

The CSV export process does not support groups. Windows Address Book (WAB) does support groups, but I don't know if a Mac can import from the Windows Address Book file.  Why don't you tell us what all import formats your Mac supports?
